How to Split a Document

Follow

The document splitting feature lets clients scroll through a long PDF document which is not broken into individual documents and add page breaks where necessary.

This is an important function that makes it infinitely easier and more practical to review these files and to prepare them for litigation.

Please note:

When a document is split in Nextpoint any assigned Bates numbers will be maintained from original to the newly split documents, but any existing coding (folders, issues, subject title, notes, etc...) will not be maintained and will need to be reapplied.

Additionally, if a document is redacted and/or highlighted, the splitting feature will be disabled to prevent the inadvertent disclosure of marked up content, particularly redactions.

 

To start splitting documents, click Review and select the document you would like to view.

In the "Document Options" drop-down menu click "Enable Splitting". Once enabled, the system will add a little scissor icon in between pages where users can choose to create breaks.

If turned on, you can simply mark all of the pages you would like broken out from a large file by scrolling to the page(s) and toggling on the scissor icon so it is green.

Once done applying your splits, click the scissor icon at the top right of your document in "Viewer Tools", confirm your choice to split documents and then your document will be split.

The newly split documents can be found via DATA > Imports as the most recent batch after your split.

Important Information about the Original

A master document remains in the system if you choose to keep it or need to revert back to the original, unbroken document for any reason.
